    Newbie from Hampton, VA

    New to Glock. Recently purchased (09/11/16) a G43 for my girlfriend. I love the weapon. Purchase came with two standard low capacity magazines. Was just interested in reading through some posts about the products. Even though I "purchased it for her" it is the weapon that I now carry. Only been to the range with it twice and I noticed a lot of wear at the top of the magazine after only ~300 rounds. The composite is flaking around the top slot. Contacted Glock and I am returning both magazines. Didn't really see any other posts related to this issue. I am mildly concerned but also interested in extended or higher capacity magazines. Any thoughts or suggestions on where and which is actually better are greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum.
    The 43 is a sweet pistol. There are no extra capacity mags but there are a variety of extensions for them. I have +2 on my 43 mags from Strike Industries.

    Enjoy the pistol, I carry mine everyday.
